23:16 - Czerny Reiter I only have III in physical format and have listened to Sentinel and Gnosis. Didn't seem like it would warrant delving much further.
23:13 - 3rdWorld Yeah I agree on it. It is mostly a problem with his latest for me. His early 2 albums were really sweet.
23:08 - Czerny Reiter I appreciate what the guy aims to achieve, but it is way too meandering and the BM parts are not that engaging. Gorgeous ambiences do compensate somewhat, but the heavier sections are often jarring or plain uninspired.
23:01 - 3rdWorld Spectral Lore is awesome bm. Probably my favourite track from them. Highly recommended. [link]
In June last year, guitarist and founding member Laurent Lebec took an indefinite hiatus from Pelican and now the band has announced that they found their new guitarist in Dallas Thomas of the band The Swan Kings for the spot Lebec left vacant.
Dallas Thomas had been filling in for Laurent Lebec at live shows and now officially joins full-time.
Currently, Pelican is focusing on the writing sessions for their new album and follow-up to their last full-length What We All Come To Need and last year's EP Ataraxia/Taraxis. The album's working title is Fecal Cliff or that might also be a stinky joke.
